-women, anti-voting laws first began? well, voters shut that down too. california and illinois now have democratic super-majorities in both chambers. democrats flipped both chambers in maine. republicans lost their super majorities in arizona, and democrats claimed new majorities and statehouses in colorado, minnesota and new hampshire. americans stood up for progress, and that's what elections are all about. >> that's why we do this. that's what politics can be. that's why elections matter. it's not small, it's big. >> this election was big. it signaled that the reagan view of government and politics is fading into the past. we are more diverse, hopeful nation, and viewers voted that way on tuesday. >>> joining me now is richard wolffe, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com, and alicia menendez, host and producer of huff post live. thank you both for being here. >> let any go to you, do you agree that republicans' loss tuesday went way beyond? >> yes, they lost on the positioning, the branding of the party f and, you know, you can look at it state by state, look at it issue

to the idiot republican leader of california. it looked like somebody has slapped him with a cold fish. he invented proposition 187. >> stephanie: yeah and we have come a long way since that. i was just thinking about that yesterday in california. look at any -- it's like gay rights or any -- when it's the right thing to do you know, when it is all about human beings, i'm telling you -- it used to be okay to talk like that, remember? >> caller: pete wilson should % have had a latino mate like arnold. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: yeah, it was a bad day for the haters. latino vote devastated the gop even worse than the exit polls showed.

, yes, courts set them when the people themselves, even in california, even in hawaii, even in most liberal places have had chance to vote they said we want marriage to be between man and woman. the polling on this it always ends up being larger majority for those favoring traditional marriage on the actual election day than what the polls normally show. if it's a dead heat in places like maine right now, my guess is, marriage is going to win. >> remember when and if the supreme court gets this case it is likely to go off on constitutional grounds. think for a moment. whether you want to vote on most of what the constitution today allows or prohibits. i'm not surprised. particularly i'm not surprised because almost all of these referenda came on very early before you saw the transformation we now see in the voting public. they came on who put them on. those who were always against same sex marriage. the people are only catching up to them now, i concede that this is one of the great transformations, issues of all times. it's not going to happen in one fell swoop but it is happening.
, miller time. the sage of southern california is in chicago this evening where he has been mulling over mitt romney's defeat. miller, what say you? >> well, let's see, first off, i just saw dick morris' dog out on michigan avenue dubs and he was that knawing on a boe made out of hemlock. >> bill: not a good day for the morris meister. >> secondly i want to say that i have met romney, folks. i know a lot of have you been convinced that this guy is the problem with america. he is not. he is a very good man. he cares greatly for this country. i have actually talked to him in the last, well, emailed him in the last day. is he a great patriot. i know that that side is going to paint him as the trouble with america. if he he is the trouble with america. folks, this country does have a lot, a lot of problems. >> bill: i didn't hear any of that today, painting romney as a problem other than he didn't run his campaign as effectively. >> i have got to jump. in i only have a few minutes here i have got it use my time. >> bill: sure. >> if you haven't heard them over the last year demonizing mitt r
, we don't know what is going to happen. nancy pelosi is in california. her home in napa valley was broken into on monday. so, she actually has some little housekeeping to take care of. apparently people broken. they don't know what is missing. sort of this bizarre thing. in the event he does retire or resign from congress, steny hoyer would be the front runner to take over as minority leader. the subtext -- almost a shakespearean subtext -- between steny hoyer and nancy pelosi, they have in turn together on capitol hill in the 1960's and they have been rivals for years. the last 10 or 12 years, competing for leadership positions in the democratic caucus. hoyer would very much like to be minority leader and he would make a bid. the question now is whether pelosi is trying to live up somebody who she -- who would be her successor of choice. there is a lot of trauma and we just don't know where the dominoes will fall until we know her intentions. it >> just to wrap up -- who is in the next generation of would- be party leaders who would like to have pelosi's endorsement or if not
in southern california. >> what did haley barbour say about jim jeffords in vermont? >> again, during this presidential process when i was asking olympia snowe or asking a candidate about olympia snowe, are you glad she's in your party? he wouldn't answer. >> right. >> and then we asked haley who said, "hell, yeah. i'm glad olympia snowe is in our party and i wish jim jeffords was, too." even on his most liberal day, jim jeffords was going to get elected more than anybody in vermont. >> do you think -- what's the time frame here? is it that the republican party has perhaps a year and a half to sort of figure out what direction they're going to head in? a year and a half before the leaders of the republican party go to the front window of the club that they belong to, open up the drapes and look out on main street and see the reality of life in america today? >> this happens all the time. i mean, i remember getting elected in 1994. you know, "u.s. news & world report" had a cover talking about the end of the democratic party. you remember 1980. >> yeah, yeah. >> people were saying the
illinois and california and are largely redistricting gains. but republican still control the house. what would you say was the democrats' message this election cycle, in terms of the issues are policy? they talked about republican extremism but, what is the strong message that the congressional level? it was two-pronged. one, medicare, and two, the ryan budget. medicare is one of the examples , and the right and budget shows different priorities, and republican parties are wrong. that message did not really .orke it was not a decisive win, certainly at the house level, for that message. my editor mentioned this to me as i was going out the door last night. we had three major house special elections over the last couple of years. one in pennsylvania, mark critz won that one, one in new york when chris lee, he of sending photographs, left office in upstate new york, was replaced by democrat, and the third when the arizona seat opened up after congresswoman giffords stepped down after that horrible shooting, she was replaced by congressman barber. the democrats won all three of those specia
into the economy in hard-hit states like nevada, florida, ohio, colorado, pennsylvania and california than any institution. they may be more important than the fed. again, we have to look at money in politics. as i say what was then and in effect of a change of opinion. >> this is very interesting. comments from offers speakers that i want to ask at a demographic group none of you touched on this site because distant name i heard of demography being impactful in america. one out of every five americans has a disability and 51% of likely voters said they have a family member with a disability. yet, at the national press club when there was an opportunity or, as you know, the past president of the press club for the romney campaign and the obama can antisense him to some to speak about disability issues, the romney campaign showed not to attend or issue a position paper on disabilities. so i wanted to ask, why given that one out of every five americans has the disability, 51% of american voters has a family or with a disability. why isn't there more of a conversation about that demographic withi
